The same problem before,
In Power Options you can set up how you want the PC to sleep. There's
sleep, hybrid sleep, and hibernation.
I recently learned what hybrid sleep is for. I had thought it had to do
with laptops, but I was wrong. Hybrid sleep is for desktops. Normally, a
desktop goes into standby when it sleeps -- maintaining power to just the
memory. But if you have a power failure while in standby, hybrid sleep is
smart enough to restore memory from the disk image. So you should use it if
there is a chance your desktop might lose power while it is sleeping, which
mine did.

vbaise, You don't want to delete those compressed files.

"Compress Old Files

Unlike the other categories, Compress Old Files doesn't delete any files from the drive. It compresses files that Windows hasn't accessed for a specified period of time. The files are still available, but there will be a slight increase in access times because the files will be decompressed the next time they are accessed. Note that when Compress Old Files is highlighted an Options button appears. Clicking it will allow you to set the number of days to wait before an unaccessed file is compressed."

If your Computer is hanging up while compressing old files when using Disk Cleanup the link below has a solution.
